The Nursery children use the computer suite on a Thursday morning and afternoon most weeks.
There have been mark making opportunities this week using pens, pencils and shaving foam.
Lots of fun games were played in the water tray and using the parachute in P.E.
Children have been trying on their costumes ready for the coming performances.
Earlier this year, Tubbenden started a new Home Learning Support Club to assist pupils with their home learning. Although Home Learning is supposed to be completed at home, we understand that sometimes this is not always possible. Miss Venn, Mr Ferguson and Mrs Bruce run the club on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday lunchtimes, providing children with any additional resources and support they may need. The club is open to children from all year groups and is already proving extremely popular!
Last Wednesday the unit classes joined together to visit Santa in his Ruxley Manor workshop. We all boarded the Ruxley express to make our way to Santa’s home in Lapland. Along the way there were a few surprises. Our first stop was the wintry snowman village where we had a good snowball fight! Next, we made some colourful Christmas tree decorations and then we were able to make our own special reindeer food to be spread on Christmas Eve. Finally, we arrived in Santa’s Grotto. We woke Santa up from his afternoon nap and we used magic to make presents appear from the chimney.
We all had a thoroughly magical trip!

Thank you for our presents Santa!
You may have noticed the large amount of building works at the Walnuts Shopping Centre in Orpington. Miller Construction have been working together with the Walnuts Shopping Centre and Miller Developments on the exciting project to regenerate this area.
Miller Construction ran a competition for local schools to produce pieces of art to decorate the hoarding with the theme ‘What would you like to see in a new shopping centre?’
We are delighted that some of our children’s artwork was selected and on Friday 28th November, the winning children were invited to the Walnuts Centre to meet Jo Johnson, our local MP, who presented the prizes and conducted a brief tour of some of the entries. Refreshments were provided and local press were invited.
We are happy to say that £103.45 was raised for the Poppy Appeal.
Thank you to everyone who contributed.
Last week in Nursery the children started getting ready for Christmas, decorating baubles for the tree.
There were also lots of opportunities for physical development through exercise, bean bags games and climbing apparatus.
Several children from TPS took part in the Bromley Primary Schools Cross Country event at Crystal Palace on Saturday 22nd November.
Well done to all the children who took part, and a big ‘Thanks’ to Miss Davis and Miss Tanner for their support on a wet Saturday Morning.
A big ‘Thank You’ to all the parents and children who supported the Book Fair. We raised just over £ 2,000 which meant that each class had £50 worth of books to choose for their class libraries. It was great to see the children and staff so excitied about the new books.
Thank you, thank you, thank you to Mrs Toller, Mrs Barnes and the team of parent helpers. This would not have been possible without you.
